INDOT project will improve bridge decks in Montgomery and Putnam Counties

The Indiana Department of Transportation announces an upcoming project includes numerous bridge decks in Montgomery and Putnam Counties beginning on or after Wednesday, April 1.

The U.S. 231 bridge over the Fork of Dry Branch located just south of State Road 32 in Crawfordsville will have one lane closed in each direction during this work.  Along with the State Road 234 bridge over Corn Stalk Creek, this is located just east of Montgomery C.R. 350 E.  Traffic will be flagged around the work on S.R. 234  Construction on these two bridges is scheduled to last through the third week of April, weather permitting.

Daytime lane restrictions will be in place during the duration of construction as crews work to patch, mill and place polymeric overlays on the bridge decks at various locations.  Prior to moving on to the next bridge another release will be sent.

This project was awarded to HIS Contractors for $1.1 million. Work is scheduled to last through the end of October of this year.

INDOT reminds motorists to follow the posted work zone speed limit, use caution and consider worker safety when traveling through a construction zone.
